Absolutely delicious! They changed their Happy Hour, but it is the best deal in town. $5 wine and cocktails. $2 and $3 tapas. We loved the beets and the spicy meatballs! Cannot wait to get back up to Stamford to visit Barcelona again!

The food was excellent. The noise intolerable. The kitchen smell distracting. The seating less than comfortable. More of a 'scene' than serene. I'll not be back

We sat on the patio and the weather was perfect. The service was attentive, the Rioja red wine was nice and the food, well the food was fantastic - not a bad bite in any of my small plates with a favorite being the pork skewered with sugarcane. Hot rustic bread was awesome too. On the way out I saw... More

great dining experience. Food is served tapas style and meant to be shared with the table. My favorites include the albondigas (meatballs) and Hanger Steak.

good wine, 1/2 price on Sun, with nice recommendations by waiter. Service was good but food very average. Maybe because we are used to a really great tapas place near our home, this seemed ordinary by comparison.

Lively atmosphere. Good friendly service. Enjoyed the variety of tapas, made fresh, served effIciently with delicious warm bread and olive oil (though short rib was too salty). Good choice of wines.
